    108 mph is decent by any standards! Well done!

    I am not sure what's up with the Garmin, everything else seems to be in order.

    Nothing out of the ordinary; these speeds are entirely consistent with the kinds of claims made every day on Bike Forums.

    Chain oil? You better keep those brakes in good tune.
    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    I assume you were spinning out. That's like terminal velocity falling from an airplane isn't it?

    That was just a peak speed. When you get your average speed up to that, I'll be impressed

    225 max cadence is pretty good regardless of what gear

    I can see getting that improvement with new handlbar tape or maybe a seat post. But chain lube? Comeon!

    Saw over 60mph up hill on an MTB on a wet long ride in 94. Surprising thing was that This was the only occurence on the ride- distance measured right and average speed according to time taken was correct. End of the ride and could not turn it off so had to take the battery out and some brown peaty coloured gunge came out with it. Dried the battery- put it back in and the computer still worked properly till I lost it a year or so later.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    The chain oil I use is bar chain oil for chain saws. Used it for years though and of course its not my formula. I didn't even notice it till a friend of mine pointed it out to me. Oh well sometimes stuff just happens I guess.

    I'm assuming one of your major ingredients is snake oil?

    Who's putting it on the chain? It's obviously being injected!

    I think it's not so much the lubricating qualities... since you must have been coasting the chain was static.

    Maybe it's an anti-wind resistance property of the stuff.

    Oiling your Garmin is generally not recommended.
